ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
Una donna ancora giovane, serena e appagata viene abbandonata all'improvviso dal marito e precipita in un gorgo scuro e antico. Rimasta con i due figli e il cane, profondamente segnata dal dolore e dall'umiliazione, Olga, dalla tranquilla Torino dove si è trasferita da qualche anno, è risucchiata tra i fantasmi della sua infanzia napoletana, che si impossessano del presente e la chiudono in una alienata e intermittente percezione di sé. Comincia così una caduta rovinosa.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:
"The Days Of Abandonment": In this deeply observed, excruciatingly blunt novel, Olga, a middle-aged wife and mother, is plunged into a breakdown after her husband leaves her for a younger woman. Her anguish is expressed through obscenity and violence, as she neglects her children and day-to-day responsibilities to obsess over what sexual acts her husband and his lover might be performing. Olga's rage and self-pity threaten to turn her into something of a monster; when she hears her daughter crying for her, she thinks, "But why should I hurry? I discovered with remorse that, if the child needed me, I felt no need of her." Still, Ferrante knows just when to let up, and the redemptive note struck by the ending is a welcome reprieve.
